Aquamarine - March's Birthstone

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Aquamarine, a stone that is said to have a calming effect on relationships because of its resemblance to the sea, is one of the world's most popular gifts.

Aquamarine, which means "sea water" in Latin, has a beautiful blue hue that is reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea. Bringing back memories of bright, sunny afternoons by the seaside and happy times spent with loved ones.

Diamonds are said to have a relaxing effect on relationships, assuring a long and happy marriage. If you are looking for something special to mark the 19th anniversary of your marriage, this is a great option.

Wearable light blue gemstone that can easily transition from day to night and is hard enough to endure a few bumps without cracking or scratching (see the Moh's scale). When paired with diamonds and other colorful stones, these jewels are a beautiful addition to any piece of jewelry.

IS AQUAMARINE CREATION POSSIBLE?

Beryl's blue variant, aquamarine, gets its name from the Latin aqua marina, which means "sea water. For millennia, we've been enchanted by this beautiful light-blue gemstone. These crystals/pencils are well-known for developing in the host rock in stunning hexagonal shapes.

Neither Morganite, nor Emerald, is a form of Beryl. They are all beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate minerals, and their color changes depending on the other minerals with which they come into contact throughout the formation process. For example, emeralds' green hue is due to the presence of minute traces of chromium and vanadium. Iron is responsible for the aquamarine's hue.

WHAT IS THE QUALITY OF AQUAMARINE? --- What should I be on the lookout for, and what should I avoid?

Exceptional Aquamarines have a gorgeous, somewhat greenish blue hue with a medium to high level of saturation. When heating Aquamarine, it is possible to eliminate some of the yellow/green coloration that is naturally present in the gemstones. For certain Aquamarine, this is a common procedure to eliminate the greener colours and emphasize the bluer hues. The gem industry has no problem with the term "heat treated (routine)" being in the market. Natural and untreated Aquamarines, on the other hand, are more sought for.

If you see Aquamarine and Blue Topaz side-by-side, you may mistake them for each other based on color. Topaz, on the other hand, is commonly irradiated to intensify its hue.

Unlike Emerald, which is frequently included or defective and thus appears "sleepy," aquamarine is typically more "clean" and hence has a higher clarity than Emerald. Gemstones with the greatest/top color and saturation mixed with the highest clarity are, as with other gems, the best.

A popular and easily accessible gemstone, aquamarine is a great choice for jewelry. Lighter colors are more economical, but the more refined, darker hues are more expensive.

HOW DID AQUAMARINE GET ITS NAME?

It's no secret that Brazil has the world's largest and most well-known Aquamarine resource; but, the mineral has also been discovered in other countries such as Pakistan, China and Myanmar; Russia and Ukraine; and, more recently, Africa. Before it was discovered in Kenya, Zambia, and Mozambique in the 1980s and 1990s, Aquamarine was only mined in Nigeria and Mozambique.

The Aquamarine Of Mozambique, From Santa Maria Africa

Mozambique, a neighboring country, has just unearthed some of the world's best Aquamarine. In terms of Aquamarine color, these stones can only be compared to the Santa Maria Aquamarine from Brazil, which has long been regarded as the best. After their Brazilian cousins, these magnificent Aquas from Mozambique have been dubbed Santa Maria Afrique.
